Help support creation of documentary on book about Iran by Noam Chomsky and David Barsamian

“The project:
TARGETING IRAN is a thirty-minute film based on the book by David Barsamian and Noam Chomsky.  Thanks exclusively to financial contributions from independent supporters, we have been able to complete our interviews with David Barsamian, Noam Chomsky and Dr. Vandana Shiva.  Now we need to hunker down and focus on editing and distributing the final piece!  Without financial support we simply cannot afford the time to finish this important work.

As Israeli and American policy makers consider a bombing of Iran‘s nuclear facilities, the corporate media is dutifully ignoring many issues related to Iran and the country’s nuclear ambitions.  Through the lens of some of the world’s greatest sociopolitical thinkers, TARGETING IRAN will examine the many political, historical, economic, military and cultural aspects of the U.S./Iranian tensions that are not being discussed in the mainstream media.

It is our intention to release the film widely, for free, before this year’s U.S. presidential election. Outlets include Free Speech TV, MoveOn.org, community access stations, and internet sites offering free downloads.  We will then take the film on the festival circuit to increase exposure.

Our first film, SOURCE TO SEA: THE COLUMBIA RIVER SWIM won several awards on the film festival circuit and screened in theaters across the United States and Canada.  Awards included 2007 Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival “Most Inspiring Adventure Film”, 2008 Telly Award “Outstanding Achievement In Sound Design” and 2007 EarthVision Film Festival “Environmental Activism/Social Justice Award”.

Please help us get this important film into the public sphere as soon as possible!”

UPDATE

“Hello Indiegogo supporters!  It’s day thirteen of our campaign and we are very grateful to those who have supported this project!  Knowing that people across the globe see the importance of this issue is very encouraging!  However, we are still very far from our goal!

We had hoped to travel to New York to interview Targeting Iran’s co-authors in New York.  We had also hoped to get the film out before the US Presidential election.  Both of these goals seem evasive at this point, and indeed, the entire film is in jeopardy.  We need several thousand dollars in additional contributions to even think about editing this film and distributing it to a global audience, for free.”

Sincerely,

Andy Norris and Ralph Davis
